WITHOUT MY SHADOW
Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander

The sunlight shines through window blinds
To wake me in the morning-
The birds will sing,
And bells will ring and peal-
And when I wake, my dreams I’ll take
With fantasies adorning-
Begin to try to make them my ideal-
Behind my eyes, I’d fantasize
And use lies to conceal-
But dreams when through, need shadows to be real-

I LOOKED AROUND AND THERE WAS YOU-
YOU BELIEVED IN ME
AND FOR THAT, I MADE IT ALL COME TRUE
AND NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’D DO
WITHOUT MY SHADOW-

I cannot see reality-
I have no sense of feeling-
Of flying blind,
I have a mindless fear-
No life in me, how can this be?
I’m floating through the ceiling-
The ground below I find is nowhere near-
The world has changed, all re-arranged
Now I’m a stranger here-
But I’ll still be real if I can feel a tear-

The twilight‘s dawn is fading on
A childhood summer’s evening-
The fog rolls by and turns the sky to grey-
I’m all alone without a home
I find my heart is grieving
Within this room, there’s none with whom to play-
I look around, all up and down
No words I’ve found to say,
Cause I know it’s true, I still need you this way!
